Become a very skilled diver, be able to dive deeper and practise better control at one of the most famous diving destinations in Thailand. Explore the local marine life and learn about its fish and corals. First, enjoy a deep dive and navigation dive to enhance your skills. For the other 3 you can chose from a wreck dive, digital photography, naturalist, multilevel, peak performance buoyancy, search and recovery, and a night dive. Discuss the best option with your instructor once you've started the course.
Attend this course on coral reproduction and learn about natural procedures that help coral reefs grow healthy again. Listen to divers explaining how to rehabilitate coral reefs which have suffered from damage caused by human or natural interference. See how this programme trains locals on how to make reefs stronger and revive broken corals. Witness all the fundamental processes either from shore or on board a boat. The founding principle is to only rebuild damaged reefs, not to create new reefs where they were not previously found. The procedure uses only live rocks and broken coral parts found on the reefs to rehabilitate them, no unnatural items as plastic or cement are brought into the process.
Start your training from the comfort of your home as you receive a downloadable manual beforehand, with which you can study the diving theory with videos and some quizzes. On your first day, have a theory check followed by for your first dive training conducted either in a pool or at the beach. The second and third day, hop on a boat and do 2 dives a day. There will be training and lots of time to enjoy the dives and the marine world. Once the training is finished, you will be a licensed PADI diver, being able to join dive trips around the world.
